KIPP Ascend Primary is an open-enrollment, public charter school located on Chicago's west side. KIPP Ascend Primary is growing to serve kindergarten through fourth grade students, partnering with KIPP Ascend Charter School to continue our students' college preparatory education through eighth grade. At KIPP Ascend Primary, our students are learners, artists, leaders, teammates and empowered citizens, living our values of create, love, inquire, make it happen and be the change as they climb the mountain to college.
At KIPP Ascend Primary, we cultivate our students' academic, character and community engagement skills, preparing them to excel in college and the competitive world so they can build a better tomorrow for themselves, their families and their community.
Support - As a network of public charter schools, KIPP schools receive the majority of their funds from state and federal governments. However, KIPP offers much more than traditional schools, including an extended school day, week and year, field trips and extracurricular activities. To provide KIPP’s unique educational program, schools rely on support from community members, parents and local foundations.
